5:01 am
black men. keeping a close eye on financial markets, the june jobs report. investors have been in a wait and see mode at 8:30 eastern time, let's check stock market futures, they are mixed with dow futures up 11, s&p up one, nasdaq pulling back a little bit. lauren: oil prices tumbled 5%, crude is up 0.7%, $48 a barrel. nicole: it is friday, july 8th. welcome to "fbn a.m.," the latest breaking news and what to expect for the day ahead. lauren: snipers opening fire on police officers in dallas killing five and injuring six others. it happened during a black lives matter rally, three suspects have been arrested, a fourth is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot after exchanging gunfire with officers in a parking garage and this is what he said
5:02 am
before he died. >> i told negotiators the end is coming. he is going to hurt and kill more of us and there are bombs all over the place in this garage and downtown. nicole: that was police chief david brown. people should check with local officials to see what areas to stay away from. this is the front page of the dallas morning news. following last night's shootings, ambush is the headline. you see a police officer there, 11 officers shot and five dead. nicole: the protest in dallas was among several across the country due to fatal shootings of black men, demonstrations were held in major cities including new york, denver and seattle. president obama reacted to the shooting of two people, one in louisiana and the other in
5:03 am
minnesota. >> when people say black lives matter it doesn't mean blue lives don't manage, just means all lives matter but now the big concern is the fact, the data shows, black folks are vulnerable. >> the president made these comments in dallas. the president has now been updated on the situation in dallas, no word if he will speak to this event. lauren: joining us to discuss the latest developments is matthew brown, former police officer in seattle. thank you for joining us. tough morning for everybody. my first question is the
5:04 am
planning involved here. >> it didn't take -- we talk about whether they are military or terrorist related. doesn't take a lot of planning, a target of opportunity. >> people get so upset when we see police officers dressed in swat gear with heavy artillery for themselves with shields and the like. they feel threatened, at the same time there will be protests going forward. it was not the first or the last and now the concern is police officers lives who tried to remain relative calm. are they the target at future protests? >> it looks that way and that is one of the things we talk about terrorism. this is an individual, group of individuals acting against the
5:05 am
state. i don't think there is any group that will be targeted that represents more of what, quote, the state is, law enforcement. they are that thin line between the rest of us and order. it looks as though there is direct attack against law enforcement, no reason it could not happen in the future. nicole: how does this affect the police response going forward? >> pretty difficult because you don't know where it is coming from. it is very troubling for the standpoint that it has shifted, the open discussion of how law enforcement interact with the public. the president's word could be more beneficial than those
5:06 am
living in the country, not us and them but all collective. nicole: everyone should be treated with respect. all lives matter, no doubt. we had a lot of the police officers in new york go through sensitivity training and here they are trying to control a protest which has merit. we understand what the protest was about but we are talking bombs, snipers, rifles. that is a different level, is it not? >> it absolutely is. it has gone from a country in which we can talk about our problems do they see fighting as an answer. any group, it seems we wait until the morning and fuel these things and the variety of groups that are attacking the state, whether it is law enforcement, those of us peaceably assembling, there seems to be escalating quite a bit.
5:07 am
what is difficult here is as a populace, i don't know that this is a way to, quote, win. it will be difficult going forward. and people trying to do their job i worried about sniper attacks. nicole: we are at an impasse. police are worried about their own lives. so our people for police are trying to protect. is there any way for police to have known this was about to happen? what are they looking at? >> that is one of the things that goes into terrorism, the pre-attackers are not going to see a small groups, individuals that choose to act on an ideology they have when they see an opportunity, extremely difficult not only to police but to forecast what is going to happen. we have gone from spontaneously doing one thing, throwing a
5:08 am
brick through a window of a car and now sniper attacks. nicole: i heard dispatch calls this morning, it was hair-raising, heart wrenching, what did we learn in the play-by-play in this, a female shot, it was play-by-play. >> as information comes in, we never know what is right, and on one side of the street, people look a certain way than they do on another side of the street and further down. numbers can change barriers

5:11 am
clips that have emerged on the streets of dallas tonight. you can hear some of the gunshots, you can make it out in the background, 11 officers total were hit, 5 have since died, others are critical and in surgery. eyewitnesses described the pandemonium as people literally scattered in every direction, not knowing where the shots were coming from. listen to this eyewitness. >> bending over, all shut down. it was right after the rally. >> this video was put out by the associated press which shows a man with a rifle hiding behind a concrete pillar and shooting. the suspect we were talking about when we had a standoff

americans about racial disparities in the criminal justice system. i also said yesterday, police have an extraordinarily difficult job. a vast majority of them do their job in outstanding fashion. i indicated the degree to which we need to be supportive of those officers who do their job each and every day protecting us and protecting our communities. today is a wrenching reminder of the sacrifices they make for us. when people are armed with powerful weapons. it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic and in the days ahead we will consider those realities as well.

united kingdom to leave the eu, created uncertainty about the future of european immigration. unfortunately this led some to suggest the entire edifice of european security and prosperity is crumbling. those have been questioning what this means for the transatlantic relationship. as was often the case in moment of change this kind of hyperbole is misplaced. i want to reaffirm basic points that bear repeating. first, based on recent discussions with prime minister cameron, angela merkel, i am absolutely confident that the uk and the european union will look together in a pragmatic and cooperative fashion to ensure the uk transitions orderly and smoothly.

5:36 am
joining us now, matthew brown, former police officer in the sadly area -- seattle-area involved in tactical training. >> what troubles me most is that it happened. what i mean is what we are seeing is a terrorist act that has a level of sophistication, the way it is portrayed, extremely complex, don't need a lot of planning in order to execute something like this, you just need a desire to do it. the same as san bernardino or miami they are seeing here. the us spent a tremendous amount of money training and special operations and act autonomously. that is what we are seeing on the threat side. this is worse than something with years and years of training behind it. this is individuals who believe the same way, who take military
5:37 am
principles, the word you are using this morning that we are seeing from this attack, snipers, ambush, explosives, all the things we attribute to the military side we are seeing played out because someone chose to do it. that is difficult to stop. nicole: they believe they have the right to do this or think it is okay to become snipers, put out bombs, we have five officers dead, 11 total that were attacked, we could have had 11 dead, it was coordinated within 48 hours whether it was over social media or a few people getting together saying let's do this. how do you stop this and prevent future anything? any event, any concert, any rally, any protest anywhere? >> absolutely. that is something we need -- he is speaking to how this is unacceptable to get every statement he makes, he uses the
5:38 am
word -- leaves the door open for people to justify what is going on. this is devastating and we don't do this, then he will say not everybody is the best cop on the street. that ambiguity cannot be present in what we are doing today. in our military strategy overseas and can't there. lauren: what is more concerning about the dallas attack, ambush, snipers and the like, domestic terrorism, it happened here at home. americans on americans. this isn't radical islamic terrorism right now. this is perhaps racism. >> it is one of those things as we go about our lives, we just
5:39 am
had 4 july, obviously there are divides in america. and people are willing to act upon those and very much depending -- is it their individual champion cause? is this an acceptable revolt? individuals coming together on short notice and exploiting an opportunity for their games? i don't know where we are. nicole: we are grieving for the families in dallas, such gratitude as president obama said for the men and women, use the term vicious, calculated, despicable attack, this was horrifying. now what are we going to hear about gun control? will this come into play? you said we will leave it for another day but what do you think? >> an interesting point. i don't know we spent time on
5:40 am
the gun control issue but what has happened over the last eight years, looking at numbers of people buying and purchasing weapons, i don't know how far down the road it seems to be regardless whether it is an elementary school, christmas gathering, law enforcement, open season on law enforcement, no one is willing to go down that road and the analysis standpoint. nicole: thank you for your time, really appreciate it. and just to get viewers up to speed. 11 offices attacked in dallas, 5 of them dead, happened at a rally. demonstrators protesting two police killings on black men earlier in the week. looking at global market action we have seen overnight, looking

>> i believe i speak for every single american when i say we are horrified over these events and stand united with the people and the police department in dallas. according to police there are multiple suspects. we will learn more undoubtedly about their twisted motivations, but let's be clear, there is no possible justification for these
5:54 am
kinds of attacks. lauren: that was president obama addressing the ambush in dallas at the nato summit. let's get you caught up on what is happening now. snipers targeting police officers in downtown dallas, 5 officers killed, 6 others injured. police arrested three suspects, the fourth is dead, after exchanging fire with officers in a parking garage, shootings happened during a black lives matter last night, we are watching markets, the jobs report coming out at 8:30 eastern time, dow futures, s&p and nasdaq up four points. that is a look at what is happening now. we continue to follow breaking news out of dallas, we discussed these police shootings. rod wheeler, former homicide detectives and fox news contributor joining us this morning. what is the first thing that comes to mind when you look at this horrific set of events? >> this is a calculated, orchestrated terrorist attack against american law enforcement
5:55 am
as we know it and it has taken the entire actuation going on in the country to a different level. the thing that stands out more than anything is these individuals probably hijacked a peaceful protest that was going on last night because when you look at the type of weapons they brought to the situation and the fact they had body armor and this was a triangulated shooting clearly shows me as an investigator this was a well-planned attack, this was not something that happened spontaneously. >> you are saying this was going to happen, triggered by the two shootings by black men, by police officers. it would have happened at another rally. >> i'm just speculating but as any law enforcement officer will tell you, the way this shooting went down, and i'm sure you heard this, the last suspect
5:56 am
committed suicide but when you look at that it has all the trappings of a terrorist group. isis even more specifically because isis doesn't want to be taken into jail or whatever but this guy committed suicide and before he killed himself, there were bombs around the city and other people died. this was an attack that would have happened one way or another whether was part of this group or another. >> a calculated attack. could it have been put together in 48 hours on the heels of the depth of the two black men that were fatally shot. you mentioned isis, racism is an issue too. we heard that tossed around. how do you separate this? >> it will take some time. we have to address the issues with police officers, we are doing that in law enforcement
5:57 am
but at the same time some responsibility must fall on the african-american community to be more self respectful and respect others and respect the rule of law in this country. only then, with leadership, strong leadership can we come together and try to deal with these issues and find solutions. >> in 2012 in dallas, the ferguson modus, officer involved shooting investigated and closely monitored, the peak of 23, 2012, last year, 11, this year so far just one. dallas was doing a good job at training there police and how to handle situations like this. >> that is interesting because one of the first things i thought about is the city of dallas, there were these events taking place, protests taking place in a number of cities last
5:58 am
night, not just dallas but 14 other cities. as an investigator i am thinking why did these individuals select the city of dallas? that goes to what i was saying earlier, that this was planned anyway, they saw this as the opportunity in the city of dallas to jump on board and police officers starting to congregate at the end the protest and that is when they decided to shoot the police officers, killing 5, six fighting for their lives. warner: it is so tragic and you mentioned other cities including chicago, atlanta, dc just to name a few. going forward americans are concerned about the men and women in blue who are there to protect and serve and keep the community safe. now what? >> police are going to continue to do that. we need the support of the
5:59 am
community. we don't want the community to wave flags but just support us and give us an opportunity to correct these mistakes some officers make. nicole: can you comment on how social media impact the way we view what is going on and how the police prevented the attack? >> we use social media now more than ever before in confronting intelligence investigations in order to garner more information about things that may be happening. because of social media these days, we are seeing things quicker than we ever have before. nicole: there are a lot of haters out there too. grief for the families of those lost in dallas. we turn it over to "mornings with maria". maria: thank you very much, good morning, it is friday, july 8th,
6:00 am
